Dr. Steven P. Dykstra, Ph.D.
Dr. Dykstra serves as a practicing psychologist for Milwaukee County, WI, serving children and families facing the most complex challenges. He directs a mobile crisis team as well as consulting and training on a variety of topics across the community.

Over the course of his more than 25 year career, he became a bold advocate on education, and reading in particular, because the fate of many of the children he sees, for whom their experience at school may be the life raft that keeps them afloat, or the weight that drags them to the bottom.
